This episode is all about mental health, drawing on Katie’s
personal experiences with mental health issues and Nick’s recent mental health first
aid course. We dissect arguments against medication for mental health;
discuss Harry Potter, The Hunger Games and mental health (you can share our
meme on this, pictured above, on Facebook
as well as considering how terms like “able-bodied”
societally enabled” fit with mental health.
We finish with some recommendations and advice for people
with mental health issues, as well as those who want to be allies. These
doing a mental
health first aid course, trying to normalise
mental health issues and reduce the stigma, and avoiding
ableist language. For more on mental health, check out the Queer
Punx’s mental health special.
